Lakeside Stadium – Albert Park, Australia

Lakeside StadiumToday’s featured track will be the last in Australia (for now) and it will also wrap up the Oceania track series.  You obviously can’t tell by the Google photo, but I have saved one of the best for last.  The track at Lakeside Stadium was installed in 2011 in this location, but after the satellite photo was taken.  The bleachers have also been renovated, and can now hold up to 7,000 people.  The track itself has eight full lanes, with two additional on the main straightaway.  Apparently, there is also a separate, 6-lane warm-up straightaway track as well.  It is the main facility for Athletics Victoria.  Prior to the addition of the track, rugby and cricket have been played on this site, dating all the way back to 1878.  Below is a cool time-lapse video of the track installation, start to finish
